Today I'm switching up the format of AirMail a bit and answering only one question but it's been a question posed to us and posed on Twitter to us and to Jets Twitter in general in many different ways and we've never really covered the topic here on the actual blog. Other Nation sites sure have - a lot - but as far as I know we have not.
So let's talk about "Embracing The Tank"

Manitoba Moose Winnipeg Jets did their best to hang in there with the Anaheim Ducks on Sunday afternoon. In the end, the Ducks took advantage of a horrid defensive breakdown in overtime and skated away with a 3-2 win over the Moose Jets at the MTS Centre.

The Winnipeg Jets called up Chase De Leo from the Manitoba Moose on emergency basis. This means that he's called up due to a player being injured and will fill in for whomever that may be.
Marko Dano missed the pre-game skate and so it is speculated he is likely the individual hurt.
Editorial revision: It has been announced that Dano is sick with the same flu that recently took out Dustin Byfuglien.

A little under a year ago, the Jets and Ducks met up in a first round playoff matchup and there was all kinds of excitement and more than a few thought the up and coming Jets could stun the battle worn and weary Ducks and give notice to the rest of the hockey world that Winnipeg had a team on the rise.
Fast forward to the present day and as both teams prepare for a Sunday afternoon battle, those battle worn and weary Ducks are back in race for top spot in the West while the Jets are still waiting for that "team on the rise" bit to actually happen... one day... soon.. maybe..

The video tribute the Winnipeg Jets had for the returning Andrew Ladd was maybe the most emotion shown by the home side the entire night as the Jets put forth a listless effort much to the glee of the Chicago Blackhawks who unlike the Jets have a lot to play for this time of the season.
